Love this sound. Well balanced.
This is nice bro, first edm track that I've listen to that I can actually get down with.
Much love, thank you! I aim to please!
so good! do you mix the vocals also?
I generally will do all the vocal mixing, but this was actually mainly premixed vocals. I did some tweaks to the chorus, reverb, and the vocal cuts in the end of chorus, but Junior Paes did a great job premixing.
Sounds very clean & professional. Great vocals. Makes me miss my old clubbing days.
Thank you a million and more! I am very happy to know that it came out clean and mixed well. I am trying very hard to perfect my craft and it seems I'm moving in the right direction. I appreciate you!
Those vocal effects at 1:25 are awesome. This is a great dance song. Good work.
Thank you very much! I am very very happy you like it! :)
The tone of the backing track does not match
That most likely is an error on my part, but if you can elaborate what feels off it will help immensely.
so little bit of improving.
I'm interested to hear your thoughts, please help me evaluate this track so that I can improve. Thanks.
Well that's not my style of music but your track got something very catchy i must say.Keep on good job mate !
Awesome, I'm glad that even though it's not in your usual genre it still has a bit of catch to it for you :D Thank you!
The track is dope, I like it.
Means a lot to me PsychoticBeats, thank you very much!
Super gut! like Blancmange meets the future...freaking you, this is so new and retro but all your own style. I love this so much. Thank you for such a great piece of work. And thanks for making it available for download. favdCru
Thank you so much, I'd not heard of Blancmange until I'd read this comment and I stopped to listen to some of his work and I'm once again honored to be a callback to artists of this style. I thank you a million times over!
Wooooow Enlightened, this is siiiiick! Very early 90's flavoured...(and a bit of Lady Gaga style too) absolutely like it!
Thank you very much! When I was making music around this time I was heavily inspired by Lady Gaga and made some nods to her in my instrumental and background voice (I'm glad you noticed). I was also inspired by Buggles - Video Killed the Radio Star, but wanted something a little new feeling which is what the first part of the second verse describes.
Wow, I'm loving the vibes in this track
Thank you, I'm very happy that you like it :)
I'm hearing a bit of the B-52's mixed with Peter Gabriel (Shock the Monkey). Def Devo and Gary Numan, as some others mentioned. This has a great 80s feel.Now all you need is some Fitz and the Tantrums vocals to blend the old with the new:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2V6yjjPbX0
I'm definitely marking this a fave!
I'm super grateful, I love the B-52's soooooo much, one of my absolute favorite groups everrrrr! Thank you!
Cool 8 bit theme! But tbh I am not a fan of your choice of synthesizer for the base line, it's a little flat to my ears, but it could just be personal. Cool arrangement though :)
If you mean the saw synth used for the secondary baseline it is one of my favorites, I didn't use as many threads on it as I usually would, but it was the clean sound I was going for. Thanks though, I'm glad it was at least somewhat intriguing to you :)
Definitely has a catchy baseline. Just give me a Vodka & redbull & I'm back in my club days.
Awesome! Thanks so much!
Just 48 seconds to fall in love with this! Sounds so brilliant, this time i have nothing to argue about!!
Awesome, always a pleasure to hear that from you :)
There's a few tracks about tonight with a retro feel going on. The synth bass riff on this one puts me in mind of Gary Numan. Nice groove to it - it definitely needs vocals.
I'm loving these references. I am truly honored to have hit the mark of time I was shooting for. Thank you so much. I can't wait to get vocals added to this one. I forgot to list it as collab, I will have to go back and edit that.
Great track! Reminds me a bit of Devo. Thanks for the DL!
Oh man! Thank you so much, it is an honor to see that it reminds you of Devo! I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thank you.
Thank you :D
Oooooooh yeaaaaaaaaah! THAT'S IT!!!!
Spiced it up a little :D
I really like the spacey echoes. Nice and smooth.
Thanks a lot! I really felt like that instrument deserved that echo and it was the first part that I made in this instrumental, everything else followed around it.
SOunds much better!!
even with all the production notes others have given, it still sounds pretty good and is very catchy!
Thank you so much!
Sure, better than 1st version, but there are still some stuff to work on.
Vocals: as Alien rightly told, add a de-esser. Then apply a 4:1 compression (to make the waveform uniform, in this way it avoids that the lower parts are not intelligible and that the higher ones are too strong). Last but not least, add an eq and soften the low-mid frequencies of the voice tone, otherwise, as it is, it still buries parts of the instrumental. After doing all this, you can adjust the overall volume.
Acoustics: still too weak. Enhance their brilliance. A tad more stereo field needs too.
Drumstuff: all at the right place but the snare. Volume still too low. If you can't do better with the one you used, add a "80's" one (if you need some samples, i got something :) ) then wide his stereo field and add a longer reverb.
Looks like I had to work with another snare, cause the one I was using was at its max potential. I used the compression ratio you mentioned, but had to manually equalize parts of it due to the piano being recorded with the vocals. Added a bit more to fluff it up and further separated the pads. I'm learning a lot, thank you.
